DH and I had a really good talk about moving forward. I explained to him how long we would be waiting even if we took the next available appt for an IVF consult, and how much prep everything will take. He decided that was enough of a break for him, and he is on board to start IVF right away! Yay!
So, our IVF consult is scheduled for September 21. It will be an all day event - meeting with the RE, shot class, semen freeze, and the mandatory session with the IVF psychologist (anyone else do that?). Ideally, we won't need it, but it feels good to have it on the calendar!
